-27C...and still digging out...

..one can only toss or carry so many shovelfuls...... yesterday I did another hour and was more or less done in ... today...looks like still close to another hour to get it finished... maybe later...the sun is out even though it is bitterly cold.... usually that is okay ...it feels good on your face .... and I do have a great down coat.... keeps me plenty warm .. and, I bet my arms and shoulders are getting stronger so ..hey... what's another hour? ...
















I can do this... poor Mr. BV is working 12 and 13 hour days right now...I hate it when he has to come home and go out in the dark to shovel after days like that... he did an hour too the other day and I called him to get in here for a hot drink... it's a project... can't all be done in a day ...





























I'm whittling it down to size ...
But, the pile out front is growing.... I can't toss it much higher... I just have to walk further with the shovel.....















In fun stuff.... I got out my little Christmas ornaments that I love to make each year....

Origami ornaments and my little walnut and hazelnut mice.... I love them both and try to  make several new ones each year..

Remember these?  You can read more about them here if you are interested... I like to have lots on our tree so that folks can take a couple home if they like them...











Okay... that's enough playing for one morning... now it's time to play with some rogue dust bunnies.... and later .. maybe some baking .... it is a beautiful sunny day and most of it should be spent in here .... where the sun  makes it feel lovely.... I'm not so sure on the standing around outside today..... I'll give it a long think................................................................................................................................................

Ha. You should see my hubby and son shovel. They do just the width of the shovel. Me? I make sure the walk is clean wherever there is concrete. love those little mice. What do you use for the tail? We just use embroidery floss but your tail looks thicker.

Hi Vee,

Pretty snow and you must get fit shovelling it away.
Love your sweet decorations - the walnut mice are darling.
Happy weekend and stay warm
hugs

I had forgotten about those little walnut mouses - SO cute (and the bonus is getting to eat the walnuts!). So sorry you've had to dig out from under that horrible cold stuff. Yuck.

Oh love the blogger header changes over the past few days. So cute! Eewww that's a lot of hard work...glad you're taking it easy a little at a time. Love love the ornaments!

Oh, that snow is DEEP! Isn't it a bugger when you can't toss it anymore? Ugh.

Do you have a snowblower that you can use? We bought one years ago for ME...so I could use it when Joe was at work. Best investment EVER.

Oh I feel for you. Not fun trying to clear snow and that too in sub zero temps. I got exhausted last year clearing just a little bit of snow but you have to do it almost everyday. Hope it thaws out quick but I guess in Canada there is no hope of that yet.

Wow, that looks like some hard work there. It's also very pretty. Here we are swealtering again. Maybe I could send you some of our sunshine and warmth for Christmas. Have a Great one Vee. Hugs Sue
